Actually studies show that pedophiles are not choosy about whom they abuse and are more likely to be heterosexual than gay. Whether a pedophile abuses a girl or boy is more an issue of opportunity than sexual preference, and adult males often have more access to boys than girls through churches, sports leagues and the like..

Here is an excerpt from the article in the link.

"Some research shows that for pedophiles, the gender of the child is immaterial. Accessibility is more the factor in who a pedophile abuses. This may explain the high incidence of children molested in church communities and fraternal organizations, where the pedophile may more easily have access to children. In these situations, an adult male is trusted by those around him, including children and their families. Males are often given access to boys to mentor, teach, coach and advise. Therefore, a male pedophile may have easier access to a male child. In trying to make sense of an adult male's sexually abusing a male child, many of us mislabel it as an act of homosexuality, which it isn't...To call child molestation of a boy by a man "homosexual" or of a girl by a man "heterosexual" is to misunderstand pedophilia. No true pedophile is attracted to adults, so neither homosexuality nor heterosexuality applies. "
